The Entrepreneurial Internship Program (EIP) gives all first-year full-time MBA students the opportunity to intern with a small entrepreneurial company for 10 weeks. Hosted by the Polsky Center and Career Services, the program allows students more financial flexibility to pursue internships at early-stage companies — like SpotHero and Tovala. In return, these companies are able to enhance their firms with the assistance of top-notch MBA students.
Accepted students receive a stipend from the school as well as compensation from their summer employers, which allows students more financial flexibility to pursue internships at early-stage companies.
Value of the EIP:
“The thing I found most valuable was probably having so much freedom and autonomy to work on complex projects that actually had a major impact on the company’s direction and success.”
